A Good Day In NM

by Terry Farmer

Went out to the East Fork of the Jemez River here in New Mexico today. The weather was mild and the fish were biting. Beautiful wild browns and splendid scenery were the highlights of this awesome day. I saw many fish, spooked some and landed a few. I used my Suntech Kurenai HM39R. The Kurenai was a perfect match for this stream and it's inhabitants. What a fine rod!! Super light, a joy to cast and deadly accurate. Sweet dreams tonight.

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." -
Col. Robert Venables 1662

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
